## Moving Around Data in Excel

Hello,

I have a fairly complicated use case (or at least it seems complicated at the surface).  We are trying to automate what was previously done by hand as much as possible with an upcoming conference.  Approximately 80 abstracts will be submitted, needing to be judged by 3 separate people (who also aren't in their department, that's a separate post).  My specific task is to build an MS Form that the judging takes place in, and get that data into a useable format for normalizing the data and then using that normalized score to determine who the top abstracts in each department are.

All of that to say, I've got data coming into an Excel workbook, but it's one row per abstract judging, as in the data on the left table.  I get the abstract author, I concat the judge's name, and I sum up their score which is all that really matters in this spreadsheet (plus the comments which I assume I'll be emailing out at some point, but that's a future me problem).

What I am needing help with is getting the data to look like it does on the right.

What we ultimately need for the normalization of data is the average score for each judge.  For thoroughness's sake, I'm far from a math or science person, but we are calculating a mean abstract judging score (which I know I can do with the data looking like it does on the left).  We then take the average score per judge, so for each of the abstracts they judge (could be 1, could be 15) one average score, and divide that by the mean abstract judging score to get the judging ratio.  We then get a normalized score for each abstract by dividing the actual total score by the judging ratio.  Then we average those normalized scores.  Confused yet?  Me neither (hahaha).

I include all that extra information to say that I don't know that the information HAS to look exactly like it does on the right, with one column per judge and a list of all of their given scores in just their own column.  If you can figure out a way to do this math with the data looking different, I'm all ears.  I just know that I can do those calculations with the data in that formation, and I can't do them with the data in its basic format that is on the left.

So tl;dr ideally I'd like help figuring out how to make the data on the left transform into what the data on the right looks like (I realize the left is incomplete, both are dummy data) without a ton of copy pasting or manual intervention.  Any help or advice is greatly appreciated, and I'm happy to answer any clarifying questions!

@lsheltonSTO1 Pls have a look this article- How to transpose Excel table via flow? | Gopenly

Here i am doing transpose of excel data which is on simple data but definitely you can achieve your requirement.

Please 'Thumbs Up' the posts that helped you and 'Accept as Solution' if my post answered your question.

Thank you so much - this is ALMOST perfect, but I've found a flaw in the execution with my use case at least.  So I'm gathering up data for a few weeks from an MS Form - three judges are judging any given abstract.  It will be a pain to create variables for each judge but it's fine, it will save me from the manual labor of copy and pasting each score.

Here's where the problem lies.  Here's my sample set of data collected, with CustID equaling AbstractAuthor/Author and Category equaling Judge # (Sales = TotalScore) :

All I really care about is the AbstractAuthor, JudgeName, and TotalScore.

This is what the flow is currently doing, with the problem scores highlighted in yellow.  Those values should be blank or zeroes (I'll have to do a Find/Replace to get rid of zeroes for math purposes, but I couldn't figure out resetting the integer to blank).  Instead, they are the last value that the judge was set to.  However, adding in a zero out at the end of the flow after the last "Set variable" pictured zeroes out all but the last judge's score, resulting in something like 0, 17, 0 instead of 16, 17, 14:

Any further help on this would be greatly appreciated!
